Best Psychic Type Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

He is also the Super Smash Bros Ultimate character that I can work best with!

Mewtwo is unstoppable what other Pokemon control Pokemon seriously he has his own Pokemon also he has the ability to take all Pokemon powers away that means no special abilities have you ever heard of the move struggle that's exactly what all will do with no abilities he is the only Pokemon to make Ash cry this Legendary Pokemon is the 1 and only man made Pokemon he has the knowledge and history of man kind and of all Pokemon and he literally reads and study's what Pokemon wants to go to a library he is a different breed of Pokemon look at the first Pokemon movie it's clear to see Mewtwo is the most powerful of all the only way you can beat him is time travel back in time to stop him from being created seriously good luck finding celebi

Yawn. Of course. Why bother looking at this list if u know who will be number 1

That's right mewtwo is the best he's new but more serious and driven.

Mew should be second, with maybe Deoxy in third.

2 Espeon Espeon

Espeon is a beautiful eeveelution. Definitely my favourite.

Espeon is the best eeveelution along with Sylveon
Look at Espeons stats. See how good they are? Also, he/she is one of the BEST baton passers. It has great speed, too. - Swiftfrost

2nd favorite eveelution and best eveelution

Espeon teamed with a decent baton passer may in fact be the best Pokemon in the game with it's high spec. Att and speed if you set this up right you've got an incredibly powerful Pokemon that can't be switched out by anything other than dragon tail and is immune to toxic etcetera I mean with just two calm minds it can take out any none resistant Pokemon in one hit with an iron defense and a speed boost (1 turn from scolipede) baton passed then 2 turns of calm mind that makes 7 stages boosted making stored power a 160 base power move and then stab makes it 240 power and then your say 385 spec. Att (my espeons spec. Att) is doubled to 770 aswel. No joke I played ubers as a joke n by fluke managed to get espeon set up and took down all the team including a mega rayquaza a darkrai and both primal Pokemon (had to use dazzling gleam on darkrai)

3 Gardevoir Gardevoir Gardevoir is a third-generation Pokémon species originally introduced as a Psychic type creature in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Very Good Pokemon. Probably My Favorite Strong One

Gardevoir should be the best because it has the additional Fairy type to deal with Dragon types

This pokemon sucks 1 trillion

Shes fast, strong, and defensive plus her additonal fairy type deals with dragons and the usual psychic bug weakness

4 Alakazam Alakazam Alakazam was first shown in game freaks Pokemon Red & Green (Blue for outside of Japan) version. Alakazam is the final evolution of the Abra line. It evolves from Kadabra when traded. It is a pure psychic type. It is said to have an IQ of 5000 and is a human like Pokemon. It has high special attack more.

I am angered that, whenever I get on this website, most comments I see are simply saying, "Y you NO PICK ALAKAZAM! He's the BEST Y you ALL SO STUPID! "*Cough, The first three comments for Alakazam, *Cough* That's right, I'm talking to everybody. These pages are designed for people to say their opinion and BACK IT UP WITH EVIDENCE! Speaking of which, if you want to know what this "Mysterious, elusive 'Sigilyph' thing," is, play Generation 5. They really are good games. Now I know that some of you are Genwunners, and that's okay. However, every generation has it's charms. For example, Generation 2 allowed you to visit TWO regions, Johto and Kanto. Generation 3(Not counting the remakes) had two different teams, and many evolutions in game mechanics. Generation 4 was chock-full of postgame, and that was really fun to play. Generation 5 had fantastic plot and character development. Personally, I love Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald with all my heart, but if somebody likes ...more

Well I like Alakazam but Mew should be higher than it ( I was the one who went on a rant under the Mew comments by the way lol)


I kinda would want to vote for gardevoir cause it is op and a unique fairy type. Count the mega evolution as well. Alakazam is probably better though and my choice of a psychic type. I used one in diamond and it teamed up very well with my Gengar. The combo is op. He is probably better cause he can mega evolve. He can counter dark types by learning either focus punch or drain punch. Psychic is an op move. Overall he is good and probably because he eats very healthy breakfasts. (I think the reason he has spoons)

5 Mew Mew Mew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

Mew is so much stronger than all the pokemon above but mewtwo but they are both super close, my friend and I did a test against all the pokemon above mew and only mew two beat mew, the rest of the psychic pokemon lost to it. Mew should be number 2

Come on people, it's psychic abilities could crush all of the above, when they are on a team!

God dammit people, Espeon is so much weaker than mew. Mew can crush Espeon in under 2 seconds.

These absolute retards who say that Gardevoir is better than this beast can suck something. Mews stats are up and down better than anything Gardevoir could ever have, Alakazam gets OHKO'd by practically any neutral move, and ESPEON?! How the hell is Espeon better than a legendary? Not to mention that Mew could learn any move. There are true fools who text here.

6 Metagross Metagross Metagross, known in Japan as Metagross, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Battle Steven Stones Metagross but prepare to get wrecked by its mega eveloution

Will yeet anyone

Metagross, with its steel-psychic type is very good because steel makes a lot of pokemon moves do less damage.

Metagross slaps.

7 Gallade Gallade Gallade, known in Japan as Erureido, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Ahem better than espeon

Gallade is an autstandind pokemon he pokemon wonder

He's so good!

Gallade, the noble Knight of the Pokemon universe, is one of the most unique Pokemon out there. its stats are excellent, with 115 Special Defense and a whopping 125 Attack. With great STAB in Zen Headbutt, Psycho Cut, and Close Combat, and the Special bulk to take one of Gengar's STAB Shadow Balls, along with the cool design, its a wonder Gallade hasn't topped the list yet.

8 Deoxys Deoxys Deoxys, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Bro Deoxys should be #2 after Mewtwo

Okay, whoever posted the card thing, this is about the game, not the card game, if there's a top psychic type Pokemon card thing, then feel free to comment there

Everyone has to watch Pokemon ranger Deoxys crisis part 1 and 2 psycho boost beats 3 attacks it should be 1

Biohazard, my deoxys, is a great hazard setter

9 Latias Latias Latias, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This thing is a tank. It's bulky enough to take some hits if it doesn't ohko it's opponents (which doesn't really happen. It usually does). Great move pool and helped me grab the Battle Symbols at the frontier

It even mega evolves so why is this so low!

It should be right after Latios

Why is latias so far below latios? It's mega is better

10 Latios Latios Latios, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Wow there is no way latios can beat mewtwoit probly can't even beat lugia

Sorry people,but Latinos Shld be #1.he can beat a Lugia or a galade OR a mwtwo ANYTIME please is my Fvrte pokemon

Why is this Dragon/Psychic pokemon so low on the list, It should be number 2 after mewtwo.

Sorry, but latios should be number one on this list, in my opinion latios is the best thing that happened to pokemon. This is for two reasons 1 the weaknesses and strengths. It is weak to fairy, dragon, ice, and dark and strong to dragon, fighting and other common types. And reason 2: IT'S MY FAVORITE POKEMON!


The Contenders

11 Lugia Lugia Lugia, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Lugia wrecks everyone anytime

He is based on one of the Creation Gods (the others being Arceus and Ho-oh) in Shinto mythology. If you are not convinced yet...check out the Silver tower and the Gold Tower that they are actual buildings in Kyoto dedicated to those Gods (dragon/male/silver), (phoenix/female/gold).Also the silver tower was burned in the past but was reconstructed...guess what in the game there's a burned tower, coincidence? I think not. Also for those who think that Lugia can reproduce. HE CANNOT. He is unique just like every other big legend. Stay out of the anime that no one should take seriously. Also, he can easily outclass Mewtwo...but I guess everyone goes for the classic choice.

Is picture is like " come on take the L and battle me so I can throw you to the hoenn region with a single slap ye boi

Lugia destroys all. It sleeps in a deep-sea trench. If it flaps its wings, it is said to cause a 40-day storm. (Diamond)

12 Arceus Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

He is the strongest Pokemon ever and the crater of the world he is savage he should be #1 best psychic Pokemon ever in the world

It's obvious. I mean come on

Why is the pokemon god so low on the list he sould be number at least right after mewtwo.

Pokemon god will be number 1 forever and ever

13 Starmie Starmie

Been using since gen 1. No complaints here. Just praise. Still have one on my party on x and as

Awesome Pokemon. Fast, versatile, destructive, can take a few hits, really nice design, deceptively powerful

This guy is NOT a psychic type.

Starmie is not just my favorite water/psychic type but is my favorite Pokemon in general, even took the time to get myself a shiny one with 5 ivs modest nature and natural cure, now with that out of the way, decent all around bulk, wide movepool, great special attack and speed whats not to like.

14 Victini Victini Victini, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Victini is the cutest Pokemon I ever seen. I think he is one of the top ten cutest. He is also is one of the strongest.

Victini can't lose. No, I'm serious it's the victory Pokemon plus it's adorable

It is a very cute pokemon

My favorite pokemon - Mooshroomsrock17

15 Sigilyph Sigilyph

I don't know, sigilyph just has a special place in my heart

Best unova flyer, and great movepool

I love this Pokémon. Such a good design and so powerful.


16 Slowbro Slowbro


I said I love him I like him because he has a shellder biting his tail

My spirit animal, literally love him in battle as well, just a frikin good pokemon. Screw Legendarys, this man is a legend

Slow toe tanks and a water type

17 Abra Abra Abra is a character from Pokemon. It started out in Pokemon Red & Green (Blue version for outside Japan) version, and was one of the first psychic type Pokemon you could run into. It sleeps for 18 hours a day and teleports if it senses danger. Its only move it can learn by level up is teleport (which more.

Must use quick ball, worth it though when it evolves to alakazam - fwed

"Oh look! An Abra, I'm gonna catch it! "... Abra used teleport. "... MOTHERF--!

Can teleport before a master ball hits him. Master ball doesn't work?! IT LIED

The most annoying wild Pokemon encounter ever...abra

18 Delphox Delphox Delphox, known in Japan as Mahoxy, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Delphox has great speed attack and its speed is very amazing

Delphox is a good choice, because can beat water pokemon with a grass knot.

Awesome starter

1 attack of psy beam with your delphfox then Pokemon faint - bashfulfox

19 Jirachi Jirachi Jirachi, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I wish pokemon were real (but they don't kill humans or destroy the world. I want it to be just like in the games and anime and manga and movies

Sadly it can only learn up to one move but still amazing!

Bruh, have you not seen the movie? He's like a fairy god parent mixed with a metagross! Come on! Then his ability allows for iron head to be the most annoying/ hilarious move ever! Don't even think for a second Jirachi she be in 13th with starmie! Jirachi should be in the top 8.

Base stats at 600!

20 Exeggutor Exeggutor

His original sprite makes him give children nightmares

I beat alpha sapphire with exeggutor and he saved me from tough situations!

This guy could reck the elite four by himself over level 60

What? Abra is much higher in the list than Exeggutor?!

21 Azelf Azelf Azelf, known in Japan as Agnome, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

My favorite one of the lake trio - Pokemonfan10

My favorite Pokemon of the lakes

Too bad its just a suicide lead

Azelf is the best Pokemon ever!
My fave
Azelf looks good as shiny
Its also not a fairy type!
Just psychic
Plus super cute and legit! - ScarlettTheAzelf

22 Bronzor Bronzor

It has good sp definitely being able to tank most Fire type moves.

It is a Pokemon of one the elite four, who SPECIALIZES PHSYCIC TYPES...

You do mean bronnZONG, right?

He is awesome :D

23 Hoopa Hoopa Hoopa, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

What about hoopa unbound ex have it in pokemon cards

It can reflect attacks I have No words at all


Hoopa is awesome it can teleport attacks straight back

24 Lunala Lunala Lunala, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

More of Solgaleo than Lunala fan - ArcticWolf

Just beat Mewtwo

I like sogealo more than lunala

25 Wobbuffet Wobbuffet

I think this is the most powerful Pokémon because he can deflect moves and in the anime if used right, can be unstoppable.

Everyone just hates this Pokemon because it can learn only up to seven moves. But it is one of the most perfect Pokemon created - Encore, Destiny bond, counter, and mirror coat is just a power move set! I have completed the elite four and champion and one of my Pokemon was wobbuffet, and he contributed a lot in battles!

Silliest Pokémon ever!

I feel this Pokemon is underrated because it looks funny and has few moves. However, those 7 moves when used together make this thing a huge threat and you can defeat almost anything with it if your using it right.

26 Cresselia Cresselia Cresselia, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Why isn't this Pokemon in the top 10? Honestly I'll prefer Alakazam over this one but this Pokemon has a better Overall Base Stat (600 equal to Mew and higher than Alakazam, Gradevoir, Gallade and Espeon and many more)

I think this pokemon should be in the top ten

Cresselia is the best Pokemon ever. Come on, lots of sucky Pokemons are over it, even Unown. Seriously, Cresselia is cooler then Gallade (Another gen 4 psychic type) which is number 5. At least Cresselia is over Bronzong, it's actually OK for me tough

27 Elgyem

He uses trick room really well and it's adorable

Love its evolution

Learns steel wing

It should not be a contender because it is very special and powerful it can squeeze the brain of enemys

28 Meowstic Meowstic

My first favorite Psychic type Pokemon is you meowstic so meow to you

so cute


Because it is cute and it can learn some pretty good moves

29 Grumpig Grumpig

Seriously, a bouncing pig? A physical attacking psychic type? What's not to love? Super unique, and a great design.

I love it because it's a great Pokemon and its first form is spoink and it's so cute

Grumpig is so underrated! Amazing special stats, unique design, beautiful color scheme, great shiny form. She's such a great Pokemon! I'm sick of hearing people call her one of generation 3's worst Pokemon. She honestly had one of the most original designs in all of Pokemon! She's also one of the cutest Pokemon in my opinion. I even think she's cuter than Spoink!
I know everyone forgets she exists and calls her ugly and a bad Pokemon, but Grumpig will always be my favorite. Even with the "better" Psychic Types.

Grumpig can lift the opponite in the air

30 Reuniclus

Reuniclus. My favorite Pokemon. Ever. If anyone comments badly, then I have two words for them. TRICK ROOM.

Reuniclus is a good pokemon. If you can give it Trick Room, Dizzy Punch, and Psychic with a Twisted Spoon, it is possibly the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) Psychic-type Pokemon.

So much Better

This floating fetus is literally God smh

31 Ralts Ralts

Although it can have only growl at first it has cool evolutions

I love ralts and all its evolutions

Ralts will be very helpful

32 Gothitelle Gothitelle

How is Gothitelle so low, well besides that people don't like the design - germshep24

Shadow tag is just great on her. She's a good utility support in double battles, with access to trick room, heal pulse, helping hand, and of course a great passive ability calles SHADOW TAG. Plus her looks are fabolous!

Shadow tag is why this thing is god tier

It's the best psychic type Pokemon as it has a variety of acts

33 Hypno Hypno

PURE Awesomeness. What's not to like. My love for Hypno started pretty recently, but he's really that awesome. JUST LOOK AT HIM. THAT PENDULUM. I'm going to go make my own pendulum right now.

Come little children come with me by the way he flipping awesome alakazam is only better cuase the mega and its get an extra evaluation and people are just like espeon so cute I love her man stuff like this and slowing should be in the top ten and I'm not saying alakazam sucks but truthfully there's better

Hypno in my opinion should be in the top ten its special defense is unbelievable and he looks a lot cooler than a lot of other psychic Pokemon


34 Mime Jr. Mime Jr.

Is so cute and can use mimic which can copy the opponites Pokemon

35 Medicham Medicham

Master of brain and brawns

This guy is just...AMAZING

This guy should be in the top ten. His ability is broken, his move pool is monstrous, and his mega is just deadly to all challengers.

Medicham is hella awesome!

36 Bronzong Bronzong

How is bronzong lower than it's starter on this list - germshep24

People sleep on this thing it needs a mega then everyone will absolutely love him and use him all the time but he's still good as it is. Set up screens, stealth rock, and EXPLODE IN THE OPPONENTS FACE.

Bronzong is OP and best non-legend psychic type Pokemon. - rexprice4

This thing is OP, why is it so far down? What do you think the most annoying thing on Lucian's team is?

37 Drowzee Drowzee Drowzee, known in Japan as Sleepe, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Its nose makes it the best

It's a psychic tapir that eats the dreams of his enemies.

38 Uxie Uxie Uxie, known in Japan as Yuxie, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

The other 2 r cute right? And cool - ScarlettTheAzelf

Uxie is underrated


He's so amazing he can outsmart even its creator.BEST POKEMON EVER! WHOO!

39 Meloetta Meloetta Meloetta is a Mythical Pokémon from the Unova Region. It is a Normal and Psychic Type. When it uses the move Relic Song, it turns into a Normal and Fighting Type and changes its appearance.

She is the first Pokemon I ever wanted to catch

I love its forms and I used it in competitive I slated people

This is my FAVORITE Pokemon, sweet and pretty. Epicness. Shame on all of you

Love her and is so sweet she is like my pikacu

40 Beldum Beldum

Yes beldum only learns a move by evolving but who would expect it to evolve from this small pod to a beastly metagross. Its also a sudo legendary.

41 Claydol Claydol

Claydol Is a BOSS. Great support Pokemon. Great threat remover.

42 Mega Mewtwo Y Mega Mewtwo Y

Seriously, why is this not first? People are seriously going insane. Seriously, I said seriously too times in a stanza, my English teacher with seriously kill me.

Mega Mewtwo y is even very strong

THIS isn't EVEN MY FINAL FORM! *"GIGA" evolves*

Next stage of Mewtwo
The second powerfullest Pokemon in the world
Its power is so exciting
It's a girl
Mega Mewtwo y fights very nicely
Its attacks are cool rest attack saves her power

PLEASE VOTE IT FOR ME! I am reqesting you

43 Mega Mewtwo X

Eh, To overused.

Litrly mew is at the top this mew is latterly the mega evolution of mew two what why is mewtwo better the mega mew two x

Sympli the greatest psychic pokemon ever.
I don't see why mewtwo should be first

Megss op

44 Musharna Musharna

Musharna is far too low on the list. When it comes to battling with Musharna, one word comes to mind; reliable. With access to a great recovey move and boosting move in calm mind, musharna can become very hard to take down. It's pure psychic typing offers some nice resistances. Musharna has some decent attacking options as well, and unlike Mewtwo, it doesn't crumble like wet toilet paper when hit with a dark type attack.

Where the heck is Musharna! It's bulky, powerful, mysterious and beautiful; with a HUGE storyline! Shocked to see it's not on the list! Hopefully more people will vote for it.

Musharna faces a lot of competition from other gen 5 psychics, but one Night Slash won't explode it into oblivion. Hands down, the best Nightmare user. EVER.

Musharna is, for me, one of the greatest Doubles partner because of its Hidden Ability, Telepathy. I use a lot of dual targeting attacks in my team (Earthquake, Surf), so Musharja is one great partner. Besides, it can block some holes within my team by being a Psychic type.

45 Psyduck Psyduck

That beak would be nice to stick up my ass and wiggle all around.

M please be my daddy

He arouses me much

What why is he not #1

46 Meditite Meditite
47 Kadabra
48 Celebi Celebi Celebi, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Celebi is awesome. It should be fourth after mew mewtwo and victini

It should be 7th after Mewtwo, Mew, Latios, Latias, Victini, And Cressalia.

She is the worst out of the generation 2 legendaries

Totally. cute as hell. Should be 1st. Enough said.

49 Xatu Xatu

The Psychic and Flying Pokémon. May have a handful of weaknesses, but that does not stop this legend from being so ' OP

Xatu is a hands down offensive sweeper with very high speed ensuring that he practically always go first. A very good move pool as well best moves are Psyshock,Psychic, Shadow Ball and Recover. Brilliant design that deserves a Mega Evolution.

Hands down, hands down. Most underrated Pokemon in Gen 2 sitting right next to Qwillfish. Xatu isn't known to have good defenses but flying type (in other words; birds) aren't known for the defense unless you are talking about Skarmory which is a whole different conversation. Xatu is beast and very unique. Great Speed and Sp. Attack. Wrecked Kanto and Jotho in Heart Gold.

Xatu:Must I say more?
Grumpig: You probably forgot that this thing even exists.
Claydol: More than just a clay doll.
